Day 16: Last Full Day in Idaho and Trip Wrap-Up

sunny 79 °F

Today I didn't do much birding here in the Sun Valley area of central Idaho but some of the better species I found were YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLER, BROWN CREEPER, LEWIS' WOODPECKER, AMERICAN DIPPER, and WARBLING VIREO. Sadly, no pictures today after yesterday's photo-heavy post.

This nearly two-and-a-half-week-long trip to Sun Valley, Idaho has seriously been one of my favorite trips of my entire life. I have gained 21 life birds on this trip, which I have to say is quite an achievement because it is simply becoming harder and harder for me to find new birds! I have also immensely enjoyed listening to the beautiful concerts of the Sun Valley Summer Symphony, in which my mom plays, and birding and hiking amongst the majestic mountain ranges out here.

So, this concludes my Idaho trip for this year. Tomorrow since I will fly home to Chicago to start my Freshman year of high school on Monday, I will not post, but please stay tuned for more of my birding adventures near the Chicago area! My family currently does not have any other big trips planned out, but that doesn't mean I'll stop birding!

Stay tuned, and as always, good birding!
